After a sun-soaked first day of school warmed nervous freshman and relaxed upperclassmen alike, the countdown to May is officially on.

When freshman Justin Hoffman showed up to his calculus class Monday morning, the Carnegie classroom location he scribbled down was completely empty. In fact, it wasn’t a classroom at all –- just some kind of office.

Unfortunately for many of the 3,450 freshmen starting their Syracuse University careers Monday, Hoffman's not alone.

Obviously confused first-years gripped their printed MySlice schedules and campus maps, wandering the paths and searching for building names such as Hinds and Heroy halls.

Motivational speaker and activist Omekongo Dibinga crusades to end genocide in Congo.

Omékongo Dibinga clasped his hands and bowed his head for a moment. Then, his voice boomed. “Five million screams falling on deaf ears, fatherless children fathered by foreign soldiers. Homes with no husbands, husbands with no honor,” he recited, filling the basement auditorium in Syracuse University’s Life Sciences building at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday with verses describing the plight of thousands of Congolese women experiencing sexual abuse as a result of war in the Congo.
